Patent application hints that Microsoft's folding phone could have three screens

Patent application hints that Microsoft's folding phone could have three screens

The phone would likely have a versatile build making it possible to be used in the phone configuration, the completely unfolded tablet configuration, and a third configuration where the phone screen could be propped up nearly like it had a kickstand that would make it flawless for watching video hands-free. As a matter of fact, the company's patent reveals that its upcoming foldable handset can turn into a tablet.

What's not as common are devices with three displays, but a new Microsoft patent shows off the possibility, and the display is not in what might be considered a typical position as it's located on the device's hinge. It was approved earlier in March of this year and what you're seeing in the images are similar to the prototype before.

It looks foldable devices could be the next trend in the smartphone industry. While a report states that Microsoft may be planning to introduce maintenance for Win32 applications for the foldable smartphones. The smartphone will function as a normal phone when folded and when the owner unfolds it, the device will function as a full-fledged tablet.

Motorola is joining the race of foldable smartphones. The patents suggested that while Microsoft has been out of the smartphone game for a long time, the Redmond-based tech giant is preparing something special for the device it will utilize to re-enter the smartphone market. There's a main camera at the top and a speaker at the bottom.

Mercedes-AMG GT S Roadster revealed
A sprint from standstill to 100km/h is absolved in 3.8 seconds and the GT S Roadster can accelerate all the way up to 308km/h . Mercedes say the AMG GT S Roadster can already be ordered from dealers, although there's no official price yet.

The sketches show other form factors as well, including tent mode, an entirely-closed book-like mode and also a carry case that we aren't sure is even a case.

ZTE uses two screens in its folding Axon M phone, but how about a folding device that uses three? This will be removable and will have an opening for the camera. "So hopefully what you just described [the Motorola Razr brand] will be developed or realized very soon".

The Surface Phone's foldable design might come with a few design advantages. Stay tuned for future updates regarding this device.
